Exploring the Limitless: AI’s prompt for deeper discovery

 

A midday program with Explorers Club Member, EC 50 2022 Honoree & Founder of Life Calling, John Mack

 

From Mt. Everest to the Mariana Trench, we’ve explored the highs and the lows of our immense planet. Has the world changed from the success of such feats? We still live in a world of conflict, of insecurity, of man-made existential threats. Clearly, we have fallen short in the exploration of our humanity. Might there be a terrain that remains unexplored—an inner-terrain—that, if only explored adequately enough, could correct the course of our human trajectory? Join John Mack for a tour of the inner-landscape that awaits a much needed discovery.

 

The evening program will also provide guests with an exclusive preview of Life Calling’s new signature initiative, h+1, a global ‘inner Impact’ model convening all sectors to answer the call of the Digital Age–offering to humanity an unprecedented opportunity to rise together and pave the way for a shared vision in celebrating all that makes us human. This new model will mobilize new frameworks surrounding philanthropy, thought leadership and education driven to move the ‘inner Needle.’

 

Check-in will be from 12:0o – 12:30 PM, followed by the program from 12:30 – 1:30 PM, and finally a reception with drinks and small bites from 1:30 – 2:30 PM.

Edit: This event was originally scheduled for Feb. 1st, but has been moved to Thursday, March 7th, at 12 PM.
